Vanilla Ice

Vanilla Ice, AKA Robert Matthew VanWinkle, Courtesy Palm Beach County Jail.

LANTANA, FL ( — Sure, it’s a little out of Boca, but we can’t resist: Robert Van Winkle — you know him as Vanilla Ice (Ice, Ice, Baby) is out of the Palm Beach County Jail today after being busted for burglary and grand theft. He allegedly stole a pool heater — and possibly other items — from a house in foreclosure.

He was arrested by police in Lantana.

Robert Matthew Van Winkle, of the 10000 block of Trianon Place, will likely retain an attorney to try to beat this, uh, rap.
